Posted:We've all done some silly things to get the attention of someone we like.

I took up running last year and I hated it, but I ran because I could be reasonably sure that a guy I worked with and was 'crushing' on would be at the park at the same time as me (he was pretty athletic and he lived a few blocks away). I would run the longer route to the rivertrack (it was pretty much down a big hill from my place, 5 minutes down the road) But I would go through his neighbourhood which was a route where I went through 2 football fields, 2 playgrounds and it added an extra 15 minutes. It was a really silly thing to do because he turned out to be arrogant prick and I couldn't see how much of an arsehole he was!

I never saw him. And even if I did I probably would have been to shy to talk to him anyway in the state I was in (completely buggered!) But hey, I got fit pretty fast at least!

Another story, I once wrote to Seth Green professing my love. I was about 14. A couple of months later I got a signed postcard saying 'Thanks for your support!' I look back now and can't really understand what I was thinking at the time!

Go on, I'm sure there are some crazy stories out there!

Posted:I literally just threw my entire life away for a girl who lived with me.

I fought and lost for the girly.

And now im homeless.

But a wandering fire artist is an artist nonetheless, no fears.

Though the girly was like them all and dissapeared when it got hard.

Figures id offer my home and life to someone, only to find them to be severely immature.

Forgive the post. Im WAAAYYYY drunk, and i recieved very sad news RE my girly tonite. Ie, she is one of those smack-talkers i so avoid.

Fun fun.

If relationships belong on homeofpoi, boy do i have stories. "/

Love yall.

Posted:I never did anything... I was always just the friend... always there, never chosen.

Now the girl I crushed on through all of high school crushes on me, but she's just a friend now. Funny that...

I did actually do a subject in year 12 I NEVER would have done unless it was for her...

I supported her through her relationship with a friend of mine (who happens to be a dick and he and I don't speak to anymore for more recent reasons) Other than her, I've never really had to chase anyone... been pretty lucky in that department... the girls I've wanted have just hurled themselves at me for some unknown reason...

I've never considered how lucky I was in that department...

I remember when I was 12... I was walking in a large group and a girl had a thing for me... I was unaware... I was walking at my own pace, which is quite fast... I've got long legs... and she was talking to me about how she hates how slow everyone else walks and how refreshing it was to walk alongside someone who walked at her own pace... She had to do a little jog thing every now and then just to keep up. That was funny.

When I was 18, on schoolies (I think thats spring break?) Its after year 12 was all done with and it was basically a drinking session down at the beach for a week grin

I wasn't feeling in a great mood one night and decided to relax by having a night in the dark in the hotel room with classical music cranked up quite loud... My friends went out and had met down at the foreshore a group of girls that were staying at the same resort as us, just downstairs, in fact.

My friends aren't really the type to make a move on a girl... But anyway... there was one girl, she was the loudest and the pushiest of the lot, had tried to get me to play a good number of drinking games that to be honest were quite dull, so I had opted out of the games and instead just sat drinking and talking... this aggravated this young lady and she was really quite getting on my nerves... but one of my friends was quite taken by her.

I had been playing with a stuffed panda that whole trip... I used to play with it in class, too. I could make it run, it actually looked pretty funny. So I was making it run around and jump off the couch and stuff like this and was having a cracker of a time.

This girl was later upset by one of her friends who was being a real bitch in a way that wouldnt make sense til you'd met her.

So I spoke to her and my heart softened a bit... Later that night she had begun to take a fancying to my panda... she named it "Geneva" (as I had forgotten what I'd named it... I have too many stuffed toys... and I tend to name ants, chocolate frogs and other assorted items I come into contact with)

That night she was sleeping on a mattress I'd hauled up from my room downstairs (Everyone wanted to crash in the same room just for fun.) And I was sleeping on a very uncomfortable couch... I did however make it look much more uncomfortable than it really was... thankfully I didn't have to endure it long, as I was offered half of her mattress.

This began a relationship that lasted two and a half years... and would have lasted longer if a series of events hadn't torn us apart.



Lol, sorry if that was a bit of a ramble, but I thought I'd extend it to "silly things I've done and other people have done in order to get the attention of the opposite sex."

Posted:I took up poi! I'd seen some firespinners before, but I never really considered doing it myself, but my crush was one of those girls who's good at everything, does yoga, and all kinds of artsy stuff.... So I figured what could be more impressive than beautiful patterns of fire?

It worked!

Posted:Add me to the 'took up poi' list..
Was staying in a hostel (for 3 months) run by a fire spinner who said he had a real thing for girls who span fire...

Hewas sort-of-just-about with another girl though, (who actually taught me quite a bit of poi) they were on the process of getting together when we met.. they have a kid now..

At least I got some l33t skillz out of the deal..

Posted:Hahaha.. a few things I've done.

The latest is join a fire dancing troupe...
I had been invited into the troupe but was too busy with Medicine and organising a conference to put in the time... but after my friend joined and started fangirling about the awesome troupe leader, I had to go see for myself. Soon enough I was going to troupe practice anyway just to oogle, and I thought "well, I seemed to make time for practice, I might as well join."

He was dreamy... dark skin, dark hair, perfect height... gorgeous smile...

And it paid off! wink

Two years and going strong.

And I guess if we break up I can say he abused his 'position of power' and win millions in the sexual harassment case. tongue2

It sounds absurd but he was the kind who LOVED to help everyone with everything and so I always had something for him to help with.. A problem with my family, a problem at school.. more often than not though it was a sprain... Ha ha I was such a hypochondriac smile

Posted:Ha ha ha! Okay, so there's this girl that I've had a thing for for quite a while and I have a short list here of the things I've done.
1. As lame as it sounds, it all started with me making playlists of my music and giving them to her (I'm a HUGE nerd about the music I listen to).
2. Bought her a ticket to a punk show for valentine's day, but I just think that that is kind of awesome smile
3. Okay okay, the list could be huge, but I think that the funniest thing happened a couple of months ago when she told me that she was going vegetarian. Naturally I figured that the best course of action would be to go vegan, which I did, hahaha. Of course her vegetarianism lasted about a week! But I'm still vegan and happy about it, now I do it for the animals and not a silly girl.

I dont think you have to be a nerd to make playlists for people... I love making CDs and stuff for people. I get a short list of songs they think epitomises their style and I put together a CD of what I think they'd enjoy based on that list. I do it for anyone, friends... family, family of friends, strangers I met on the train...

I LOVE my music and I love spreading what I believe to be good quality music.

Posted:I quit my job that I had worked at for one day because if I continued working they would have me work the upcoming long weekend. And it was her birthday and I wanted to go and visit her for her birthday. So, I did and borrowed a couple hundred dollars from my parents to afford the bus ticket out there for the weekend. Of course all her friends told her that I was in love with her and I got the yer jsut a friend speech. So, that kinda sucks but I convinced her that her friends were crazy and we are still friends so its ok. And some drunk girl tried to make out with me on the bus b4 she got handcuffed at the front for trying to get off the bus. At nite... in the middle of nowhere.

Posted:I remember I made a 'book' (a folded over bit of cardboard) called 'Aimee loves Gordon' when I was 6, with a story and pictures on the inside about our future life together, and gave it to him during handwriting class. He called me names and threw it in a puddle at playtime laugh3 laugh3 laugh3

Don't think I've done anything since then to try and win a crush over. I've never been much of a 'crush' person, especially as I've got older.
Most of ex's have been friends beforehand, with things happening almost by accident.
I learnt very quickly that crushes would almost always leave me dissapointed!

For my birthday last year before me and Simta had got together - he bought me the most beautiful leather bound sketchbook.
It was so lovely and had been exactly what I'd been looking for at the time! Perfect paper thickness and texture too ubblove
I knew he was crushing on me for a loooong time before I finally said yes to him, and feel so bad for not saying yes earlier as I was totally missing out!
Love you Sim kiss

Is there no middle ground really? Or am I misreading and generalising horribly.
